Do shiny pokemons have a different color all the way through the battle in the wild?
This is my first pokemon game and I'm not sure how to catch one!

There will be a sparkle, some pokemon such as garchomp barely change so you need to pay attention

It sparkles when it enters battle and will usually be a different color. You'll know if you see one.

Do they sparkle when you see them through the grass or only when it gets to the battle?

They sparkle when they come into battle and are always an alternate color than the normal species.
Shininess is always kept, even during evolution and/or form changes.

Only in battle.

Honestly, you'll probably almost never see one. I've never ran into one myself and I've played since the first games.

The chance is something like 1 in 8000
